Happy National Pie Day!
I’ll be honest, I’ve always celebrated dessert pies on Pi Day (March 14) — shame on me! Pies deserve their own day, and that day is today, January 23.
I love a good pie as much as the next gal — we even served pie at our wedding! But this year, I’ve fallen in love with the trend to decorate the crust. How?
Just cut a couple shapes or designs out of extra crust using cookie or pie cutters, use cinnamon to add a pattern or design to the top, or even cut and shape a dimensional design out of the crust. The possibilities are endless! And while I am by NO MEANS a pie baking expert, I have had fun baking some new geek eats and learning tips, tricks, and finding inspirations from the Pie Goddess, also known as @ThePieous on Instagram. You MUST check out her amazing creations.
If you’re in a baking mood, celebrate the day by trying out one of my geeky pies.
